Stockholm is, relatively speaking, a small capital. So many of its most popular attractions, shops, and restaurants are concentrated in the central areas; Norrmalm, Södermalm, Vasastan, Old Town, Kungsholmen, and Östermalm.

This isn’t to say that the surrounding areas and suburbs are lacking in exciting activities and great food. Some are reachable just by taking the subway, some require a little more planning. But they’re all great spots to visit if you want to travel beyond the confines of the city.
